The news comes as NBC’s parent, Universal Television, closes a new five-year deal with Wolf Entertainment that includes a three-year season renewal for Chicago Fire, Chicago P.D. and Chicago Med. “I’m gratified and excited that Universal will remain our home for five more years,” said Dick Wolf. “This new term deal complements our recently concluded agreement to make Peacock one of the primary destinations for both the ‘L&O’ and ‘Chicago’ brands, as well as our extraordinary three-year NBC broadcast pickups on all four current series. We are now supercharged to expand our business on new platforms, both domestically and internationally, while continuing to produce our current and future series for broadcasting and streaming networks.” “Dick Wolf has proven time and time again that he makes shows audiences love,” said Paul Telegdy, Chairman, NBC Entertainment. “We are delighted, excited and proud that as part of this epic deal with Wolf Entertainment, NBC’s loyal audience will know that their favorite shows have a certain future for the next three years.” Although not from Wolf, NBC also picked up procedural drama New Amsterdam for three seasons in January.
